One victim remains in the Pit: Hammer Showdown. Tyreese, Prison Advisor is a weaker option than Pro-Football Tyreese (the current Pit King) but I decided to deck him out like his figure even though it breaks my normal 75 point limit.

We had our first chance to play the new beta rules of Dropzone Commander (currently version 2.4.1). It was nice to see Dropzone hit the table but since they’ve only released stats for the four core factions, I was relegated to playing with my friend’s UCM models. We decided to keep it simple and play with only the starter set of models and out of five of us, we had all four factions covered.
I was able to dig out a little and get another Pit game in this week. This week, we stick around with Tyreese and continue with the “who wielded it best” competition.
Tyreese, Blinded By Rage is up next. I had to bend the 75 point limit a bit to keep Tyreese in the “hammer builds” so he weighs in at a bloated 85 points. I don’t have a lot of confidence in this iteration of Tyreese as his damage output doesn’t look much better than Pro-Football Tyreese and he’s 11 points more. He also has a bad power, “Raging!” that ups threat even faster, which will make this pit venture harder.
To help focus my painting, I’ve decided to look at some themed Pit run-throughs. We’ve already seen that with my “kids night” session last week but this time I’m going to focus on figures with a particular weapon.
I’d already previewed these models last week but I figured it was time to try out this new series titled “who wielded it best.” These next few sessions will showcase the hammer wielders Clementine and Tyreese.
Today is unofficial Walking Dead Kids Day. I just declared it for no other reason than the fact that I painted up a few more survivors and they are decidedly pint-sized.
I’d already painted up Carl, Duane, and the Twins so I decided to finish out the “Children of The Walking Dead” by working on Clementine and Sophia.
See I caught ’em wit a right hook, caught ’em wit a jab
Caught ’em wit an uppercut, kicked ’em in his ass
